about the exhibition
Talking GENDERS Youth Exhibition queers the walls, halls and staircases of the womans museum with an artistic take over that consists of bold and daring multi media art works by a selection of young artists aged 16-26 recruited from Denmark, France and U.K. Each of the young artists works tackle themes of gender, sexuality and identity from youthful perspectives. The exhibition features photography, video and sound installations that give visibility to young artists living in todays’ society.
The Talking GENDERS Youth Exhibition is the result of three international community engagement projects led by Himherandit Productions in Denmark, France and U.K between 2016-2017, titled Talking GENDERS Youth Projects.
These three community engagement projects recruited young persons to take part in intensive artist development programs where young persons engaged in intensive workshops and artistic mentoring facilitated by professional guest artists. The results were an astounding collection of 33 diverse artworks that are now for the first time being brought together for this collective exhibition that show cases the talents of the young artists works from France, Denmark and U.K.
